What To Expect
Enjoy a fantastic hike in North Coyote Buttes and follow your expert guide who will show you places you would never have seen without him!
Explore The Wave section, which is made of Jurassic age navajo sandstone that is approximately 190 million years old. Scientists say that the old sand dunes turned into hard compacted rock over the ages, calcifying in vertical and horizontal layers. And it is erosion by wind and rain that has created the spectacular landscape which appears now.
Discover the natural and wild beauty of the place, climb up hills and make your way through beautiful sandy and rocky areas. Along the way, you will get to stop at several amazing photographic areas, and you are sure to leave with many framable images.
A good time for photographing The Wave is the few hours around midday, when there are no shadows in the center, although early morning and late afternoon shadows can also make for dramatic photos. After a recent rain storm, numerous pools form can also be great for shooting.
